“After Party”
- Once again it's time for the 20th annual P.R.I.D.E fundraising gala. For LA's best, and brightest it's a time to give back to the community that they ever so care about. For a specific group of teenagers it's just another lousy night with their parents.
- But at least there's the after party at Nico's. Their parents drink a bit more than they could at the gala, and the kids can kick it by the pool or in the game's room. It's not as bad as you'd think, occasionally make-outs are to be had. The real fun is always snooping around another person's house.
- After several underwhelming minutes of snooping the Six-ish teenagers concede defeat in the Minoru's Accusing Parlor. But with one wrong step they open a door, that they wish they had never gone through.
